"An Agreed Statement by the Second Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission ARCIC II". -- title-page.
"Popularly, it had been a fairly common perception that Anglicans and Roman Catholics differ profoundly in their approach to moral issues. In this Agreed Statement -- the first such statement from any international theological dialogue on moral issues -- these perceptions are brought into question. The statement describes a vision of the Christian life and its moral implications which is shared at root by Anglicans and Roman Catholics. On only two moral issues is there documented disagreement between our communions. Theological dialogue demonstrates how the different emphases on these issues and in other areas of Christian morality have arisen through the two communions living in separation since the break caused by the Reformation in the sixteenth century. This Agreed Statement offers the Churches new possibilities in working together so that they may speak with one voice on the essential moral issues which face our contemporary world". -- back cover.
